Image packs

Friends do you think making graphics packs available like avatar packs, emoticon packs, banners/ads etc would be a good idea. Would they come in handy ? 

Please take a minute or two and respond letting me know what sizes you think would be best used. For instance, avatars 60 X 60 or bigger, would you like them in sets like celebrity, Movies, cartoon ? Banners/Ads size should be maybe 476 X 60 or so ? Light or dark themed ? 

Any input at all will be very helpful.  Thanks friends.

All good ideas in my opinion. I kinda like the Thematic avatars in v9, given they match the default theme. Maybe something like that, with more variety and no text would be nice. 80x80 seems to be the more usual avatar size, so I would opt for that.

Great idea friend.

and yes the default blue is dominant for sure and the graphics packs i want to make are to replace the default buttons and banners etc. to lighten things up a bit. Give more flexibility to users.

I lack a certain creative artistic gene myself when it comes to graphics design, so anything you can do to add to ocPortal/Composr would be awesome! For images like avatars, icons, and banners that might be stylised with a border or gradient background, releasing a .psd (assuming you work with Photoshop) version of the images that preserves the layers and effects would be great. Even having various styled templates in sizes that are similar to the default ocPortal/Composr sizes to drop our own images, icons, and clipart onto would be good for avatars and category icons. For sizes, I guess it's probably best to err on the side of going too big. For banners, Google AdSense is pushing for people to switch to 728x90 banners and it looks like Composr will be using that size as the default banner size as well. Skyscraper banners 160x600 might be useful for left and right panels for anybody that redesigns their website header area and removes the header banner.

Thank you for your input Jason, I already started on the first button set. Will be great for light colored themes. I do use Creative Suite 6 from Adobe so i will be more then happy to place the psd's in with all packs. I can create some icons, avatar packs and banners as well. I love doing graphics and am more then willing to contribute as much as i can.

If you need or would like anything in particular just PM me. I am almost done our first theme for our site but you know how that works. Keep knit picking and wanting to add more and more. :-)
